and the profiteering continues.

oh those whacky halliburton execs, overcharging was pegged last year at $108 million but has risen to over $212 million and counting. my how ironic, and appropriate, is mr. cheney's first name.

You know this is what I do for a living, right?

I administer, negotiate, and close out contracts between the two entities you speak of (in a general sense not the specific people involved here).  

I have a huge list of proper do's and don'ts for how I conduct myself with contractors and, but especially, can I never show favoritism.

just sayin'....

hugs..well you're doing your job, and most deals do not have outcomes like this.

but you give no-bid contracts to infamous war-profiteers with links to the vice president of a war-loving/profiteering administration and things are bound to happen. or maybe it was just one of those accounting mishaps. why i misplaced my quarter of a billion dollars just the other day. boy was my face red.
